Day by day

Day 1 : Baltra Island & North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island is named after Lord Hugh Seymour, an English nobleman. The island was formed by submarine lava uplifted. It is home to about 2,500 land and blue-footed sea lions. There are also large numbers of common noddies, frigatebirds, blue-footed bobies, and sea lions. You can see both marine and land iguanas along the coast, as well as the largest colony Magnificent Frigatebirds.

Day 2 : Isabela Island: Vicente Roca Point & Fernandina Island: Espinoza Point

Isabela Island, which measures 120km long and is uniquely shaped like an ocean-horse, is the largest Galapagos Islands island. It is the only island that is inhabited. According to the last census, there were approximately 2,200 residents living in the southern part of the island. Six different shield volcanoes, from North to South, formed the island. They erupted continuously and eventually joined together to create the entire island. Isabela, the archipelago's most active island, was the last to erupt from Wolf Volcano in May 2015. Isabela is home to a variety of wildlife, including the pink iguana and wild tortoises. There are 6 volcanoes nearby.

Isabela Island: Vicente Roca Point

Vicente Roca Point's geological formations are truly remarkable. It is a great spot to see many bird species, including Nazca boobies and blue-footed boobies. You can either snorkel or paddle a dinghy, panga or kayak on the water. The Cromwell Current is a source of cold water and nutrients in the western portion of the island. It is possible to witness a variety of animals, including whales, dolphins and sea lions, in their feeding frenzy. Sometimes, fur seals may be seen.

Fernandina Island: Espinoza Point

Fernandina Island is home to no foreign species. It is therefore one of the most beautiful island ecosystems in the world. It is the archipelago's westernmost island and one of its most active islands. With lava fields reaching to the ocean, the volcano "La Cumbre", dominates the landscape. Cromwell Current flows to the west, providing cold water and nutrients that are ideal for the Galapagos Penguins and Flightless Cormorants who nest here.
